WHO ARE WE

 
In early 2017, four passionate string quartet musicians gathered and founded the Elmire Quartet. Since their meeting at the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique in Paris, they are writing the history as a group of four and pay tribute, in unison, to the repertoire of the string quartet.

🎻😘 Based in Paris and formed in December 2016, the Elmire Quartet won the 3rd prize and the special prize for the best performance of the commissioned piece at the Carl Nielsen International Competition in Copenhagen in 2019.

They also received the 2nd prize at the FNAPEC European Competition in Paris as well as the Second Prize Premio "Luigi Boccherini" and the Adolfo Betti Special Prize for the Best String Quartet at the Concorso di Musica da Camera Virtuoso & Belcanto, in Lucca, in 2018. That same year, they won the "Rheingau Music Festival" prize at the "63rd Jeunesses Musicales International Chamber Music Campus" in Weikersheim.

Their common taste for the string quartet's repertoire led them to promote it in various festivals and concerts like Wissembourg Festival, Les Arcs Festival or « Les rencontres Musicales d’Evian ». The Elmire Quartet learned from the teaching of their two masters: Philippe Bernhard from the Quatuor Modigliani and Luc-Marie Aguera from the Ysaye Quartet. They also took part in several Masterclasses with great masters and chamber musicians. In June 2018, the Elmire Quartet became ProQuartet artist resident.

✨Finally, we did it !! ✨

We miss to be on stage so much !! We can’t let you without music during this quarantine. 😏

It’s a great experience for us to not be in quarantine as a quartet. 🧐

For the last 3 years, we have not been separated for more than a week. 😭

This situation is unique and as we told you in our previous posts,
this is the perfect time to look at the past few years and be ready for the next, new, amazing, wonderful, unbelievable .... adventures. 🔥

We (re)play here for you the last mouvement from the haydn Opus.76 N5 which has become our bis over the concerts!

We all love you,

Quatuor Elmire

Such an honor to do the premiere of this fantastic piece composed by Matias Vestergård, Composer !! 😍

We won the special Prize for the commissioned piece at Carl Nielsen International Chamber Music Competition with this one 😌

📸Bernard MartinezToday my second string quartet was supposed to have been premiered at the Abbaye de Noirlac in Berry, France - that won’t happen for another year now though. Instead, I’ve put fabulous Quatuor Elmire s interpretation of my first string quartet ‘TRÆK’ on my youtube channel. These boys took home the prize for best interpretation of my piece, as well as third place in the International Carl Nielsen Chamber Music Competition back in october last year - enjoy!⚡️🎻
